Bouncing Back: Adam Adelstein Beat a Scary Head Injury to Return to Baseball

By Brief22 @SamsSportsBrief

On June 28 of last year, Adam Adelstein was sprawled on the pitcher’s mound at Barrington High School after taking a line drive to the right side of his head. He suffered a fractured skull, a torn artery and internal bleeding on his brain. Following emergency brain surgery the night of his injury, Adelstein couldn’t walk for 4 days and required constant assistance for weeks. But after recovering and rehabbing for months, he finally returned to full strength and played outfield for the HPHS baseball team this season.

I chronicled Adelstein’s incredible recovery story in this 3,000-word feature for the Pioneer Press, coupled with a video about his love of playing piano. You can view the story by clicking here.
